About the Hope & Healing Center

The Hope & Healing Center is a collection of programs and services available for the family of patients who died under hospice care, as well as members of the community who are grieving the death of a loved one. Services available in Queen Anne’s, Kent and Caroline Counties include, individual and family grief counseling, grief support groups, school based grief counseling, a grief retreat Camp New Dawn, and remembrance events and specialized workshops. Since most grief support programs are offered free of charge, Compass Regional Hospice depends on donations to cover the cost of operating the Hope & Healing Center.

Much like a compass, the priorities of the Charting Our Course Together capital campaign points the way toward the future of Compass Regional Hospice. In order to meet the unmet and growing needs of our community, the existing Hope & Healing Center located at 255 Comet Drive in Centreville needs to be renovated so that we can continue to expand our grief support services. The planned renovations will create the additional space needed to accommodate new support services and healing modalities. For more information about the Charting Our Course Together capital campaign or how you can donate, contact Kenda Leager, Development Officer, 443-262-4106, kleager@compassregionalhospice.org or visit compassregionalhospice.org/otherwaystogive/campaign
